Its frightening when you think of it really don't you think?
that once upon a time Ben Elton was the 'face of comedy'
Well said Fourpio
I think I've overestimated my 'popularity' - maybe I'm aloof?
Africa's foremost comedian.
Burke and Hare are funnier than Mitchell & Webb for example.
See what I did there, DrLOLl Art thread
Some people do. Maybe I should have my own show.
The future of comedy: whatever. I'm sure something will come along that amuses me, and some things will come along that don't. Same as it ever was.
it all becomes less funnier if that makes sense.
Allo Allo was much funnier when i was about 9, and didnt get any of the jokes.
where are the notes?
I don't find the future of comedy frightening. I like lots of comedy programmes/comedians that are around now, and I like lots from the past. I'm not worried that in the future people will stop being funny, no. Should I?
and got waylaid and pressed 'send' - but thanks for noticing 'teach'!
I think i'm trying to get my ehad round post modernism moving naturally into pre-modernism which surely will happen and then we won't have everyone thinking theyre funny because they made a witty rejoinder on some panel game on UKBastardFaceGold or something.
Its scary when people like Sue Perkins are considered funny.
I think comedy is going to get healthier as things become more tragic
and it's name is Get A Grip.
its the new harry Enfield show - I laughed until the tears became tears for a life wasted going 'only me' for laughs at school for 13 years.
Heh heh x tee hee = Ive wasted my life. AGAIN
